The current plans call for 2,407 acres to the city of Palm Beach Gardens for Conservation. Rosa Schechter and Avenir Holdings principal says this land set aside will connect about 100,00 acres of conservation land from the east coast to Lake Okeechobee helping Everglades’s restoration.
Avenir Holdings has also a dedication of 50 acres to the city of Palm Beach Gardens This land could be used to accommodate up to 500,00 square feet of economic development, which would allow the city to lure corporate headquarters, which has gained the support of the Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce and the economic counsel of Palm Beach County.
Avenir plans to include 2 million square feet of office space, including 200,000 square feet of medical office space, 400,000 square feet of retail space, a 300 room hotel, plus 15 acres for schools and 55 acres for parks.
